Bundling a seperate version of Java with an Application for OS X - Mac Programming

I'm trying to deploy a Java app to a client and ran into a problem. The app developed runs fine in Java 1.4.1, but crashes on machines updated with the new Java 1.4.2. Since I can't be sure the client isn't going to upgrade their systems, I was curious if there was some way to bundle 1.4.1 with the app, so it will always be used to run the app. I know you can do it on a Windows machine, but I'm new to Apple development and haven't been able to locate a standalone Apple JDK. Thanks!...

    Default Bundling a seperate version of Java with an Application for OS X

    updated with the new Java 1.4.2.

    Java on Mac OS X is part of the OS. You can't bundle it separately.

    On the other hand, new Java releases should never cause regressions in
    existing applications. Head on over to <http://connect.apple.com/> and
    file a bug report with Apple explaining that you're seeing a crash in
    1.4.2 that didn't happen in 1.4.1. They're very interested in any bugs
    like that.

    The JDK version can be specified IIRC in the info.plst of an bundled
    Java application.
